It's just one of those

It's just one of those stories that no matter what else you have in your audio book library that gets pushed to the front. I am a big fan of the series as it never disappoints. I will definitely keep moving forward with the series and can not wait until the show comes back around.

Always love Longmire!

Great story and reader! Most interesting is the Native American folklore and local color of Wyoming. Ready for the next one!

I'm Hooked

Just as I was with the TV series, I enjoy this Longmire series. I did not know it existed before it came on television. The stories are a little more involved and Longmire is a lot smarter in the books. Henry Standing Bear is the most interesting of all. I have someone to imagine as I listen. Vic is a lot different. I'm off to the next in the series!

Perpetual entertainment for the soul.

These stories are perpetually entertaining. And the characters feel like family. I imagine I will listen to the entire series. It is comfort food to quiet my soul.

Just great.

I love these books as much for their narration as the characters themselves. Compelling story, great performance! Can't wait to listen to the next one.

Good , but not the best

The narrator puts you in the story. Will purchase more in the series. I enjoy the books over the tv series.

Kindness goes unpunished

Another great read. Love the writing and the narration is beyond anything else in its field. Thought three was better than two for me. Looking forward to number four

Walt Goes East

I enjoyed this addition to the Longmire series, though I don't think it was Johnson's strongest book. The character development in particular was well done. Put Walt out East and see how he reacts to the cultural differences- you get some amusing situations. The mystery itself seemed a bit farfetched. Wyoming Sheriff goes to Philadelphia and, of course, there's indians? In PHILLY? Having lived there... that part didn't ring too true. Still, I was willing to let it go because I don't read these books for the East-coast culture. In that regard, I was glad Johnson didn't swing too far away from the nature of his books.

Johnson also gave us some incite in this book to Vic's personality-through her family- which was very much appreciated. I'm still not sure I like her much, but her family was enjoyable. You don't see too much of Vic, personally, until close to the end of the story. Not sure I'm too keen on where Johnson seems to be going with her, but it did feel natural, so I won't complain.

My only true criticism comes where Johnson had a scene inside a gun shop/ shooting range. He described the gun shop well, sounded like a thousand other gun shops around the country. However, if you're a shooter, you won't recognize the weird range/ shooting club he describes at all. There would never be music playing at an indoor range- everyone's wearing ear protection, why bother? And for the love of taco sauce, there sure as HELL would NOT be lots of people milling around and bumping into each other, pointing their weapons willy-nilly in a party atmosphere.

Oh, did I mention there was a bar at the range?

A BAR.

YES.

I'm just glad that he had everyone drinking water and non-alcoholic beer. Nothing in that scene made much sense and it bugs me even now, even long after finishing the book.
